A new mind reading robot teacher has been created that stops you from snoozing during lessons.

Tech whizzes in America say it uses special sensors to monitor a student's brain signals while they learn.

When the brain signals dip down, indicating that the student's not concentrating as much, the system sends a message to the robot.

The robot then raises its voice or moves its arms around on screen to get the student's attention back, just like a real teacher might do!
